Sample text

In the Harvard Child Bereavement Study we were surprised to find the large number of children who stayed connected with the parent who died by speaking to, thinking of, dreaming of, and feeling watched by that parent. Two years after the death, two-thirds of the children still felt watched by their dead parent (Silverman, Nickman, & Worden, 1992). Klass (1999), who has worked for many years with bereaved parents, also documents the need of these parents to stay connected with their dead children in some way.

Their reactions were mixed—some felt that they had obtained some sort of contact with the dead and a few had been frightened by this. On the whole they did not feel satisfied by the experience and none had become a regular attendee at spiritualist meetings. (pp. 55–56) An interesting paper was published recently on the history and current picture of spiritualism in the United States and Britain. The author interviewed a number of attendees at spiritualist meetings. Although many initially attended in an attempt to find out if their loved one was at peace or to hear words of advice from the other side, the majority of those interviewed continued attending spiritualist meetings because they liked the values and fellowship found in the group (Wallis, 2001).

Also, this approach implies that mourning can be influenced by intervention from the outside. In other words, the mourner may see the phases as something to be passed through, whereas the tasks approach can give the mourner some sense of leverage and hope that there is something that he or she can actively do to adapt to the death of a loved one. There is obvious validity to both of these approaches. Grieving is something that takes time; the oft-repeated phrase “Time heals” holds true. There is also truth to the notion that mourning creates tasks that need to be accomplished, and although this may seem overwhelming to the person in the throes of acute grief, it can, with the facilitation of a counselor, offer hope that something can be done and that there is a way through it.
